Sexual and Reproductive Health of Young People in Asia and the Pacific
PDF File Size: 6.72 MB | Download   
A significant proportion of young people in the region are sexually active, and while for many the onset of sexual activity is associated with marriage, an increasing number are initiating sex before marriage. The available information indicates that most young people are ill-prepared for this transition, having insufficient knowledge and life-skills to negotiate safe and consensual relationships and facing considerable barriers to accessing services and commodities needed to avoid unsafe sex and its consequences. Additionally, a significant proportion of adolescent girls and young women report coerced sex and up to half have experienced sexual violence. Rates of violence are alsohigh among young female sex workers, men who have sex with men, and young transgender people. As a result, young people are at risk of poor outcomes such as early and unintended pregnancy, unsafe abortion, sexually transmitted infections, and HIV. Poor sexual and reproductive health not only impacts on the health and well-being of young people, but also has significant socioeconomic implications, impacting on education, economic participation and poverty. These negative consequences extend to young people’s families and future generations, and can perpetuate a cycle of poor health and disadvantage.
